Skoda UK debuts eight new models in one day

Skoda has announced a staggering eight new limited 'black editions' of its existing models in the UK market, right from the Citigo hatch up to the Superb sedan. Making this range stand out from the other models will be the metallic/pearl black or white paint. They will also sport black alloy wheels, black exterior styling details, full leather upholstery, sunset privacy glass windows (for the passenger windows), DAB radio (Europe digital radio) and satellite navigation as standard.


Skoda has released two images of the new cars (Octavia and Yeti) and we do like what we see. The all black treatment lends the cars a cool custom look that assures all of the black models will certainly stand out from the crowd. Each of the cars will feature at least Rs 1.25 lakh (estimated) of optional extras over their standard models. There is however no word on whether these black (and white) beauties will make it to Indian Skoda dealerships anytime soon.
